Today on Educate For Life, Kevin has two great guests to discuss the interesting connection between science and ministry. How do you get a scientist and a pastor to team up?
Dr. Anthony Silvestro grew up in a Roman Catholic family. His love for science began at an early age. Throughout his early years of education, he excelled in both mathematics and science. As a result, the secular world accomplished its goal: he became an evolutionist by the time he completed his ninth-grade biology class. This became the start of his fast-paced drift away from God. Years later after meeting his wife Julie, who was also raised Roman Catholic, God got ahold of Dr. Silvestro. On a trip to a medical conference he visited the Creation Museum and discovered that he needed to rethink everything he thought he knew about evolution. Today, he is a creationist working with churches to equip them to defend a biblical worldview.
